VPN means Virtual Private Network and it is a tool that many people choose to use on protecting their online privacy and increasing the security on Internet. Actually, it is designed to transmit the data between VPN company’s network and the remote user as a safe and confidential tunnel.

VPN can redirect the internet traffic via a specially configured remote server to any of VPN provider’s worldwide location sites chosen by the user. In this case, VPN will send your internet traffic through its server to other location or country in order to hide your apparent virtual location and also encrypt all the in and out information.
